Neat. My approach is not too different, except that I am building the classes
directly in python rather than C. One consideration here is that our programmers
don't have much OOP experience and sometimes it easier to convert them
by degrees. Once they see that python is as good as C for "regular"
dblib calls then we can try things like sybdb.sql().
